White sneakers are the real deal when it comes to dressing up nowadays, and they’re in no doubt in the list of no-fail closet staples every woman (or man, even) must have. I remember there were times I hated wearing rubber shoes because they’re a contradiction to my rather feminine style, but I love how they transitioned from being sporty to preppy to outright girly. More than that, who wouldn’t love walking in comfort & style? Ahh, if only I could wear white sneakers all time time, I definitely would.
I’ve tried sporting white sneakers with various styles I can think of, and here a few favorites that can probably help you if you need some dressing up inspiration:
The Preppy Look: Striped long-sleeve knitted cropped top and skater skirt
Peg your school cheerleader in this outfit that will make you look younger in an instant.
That Trusty LBD: All black ensemble + a pop of white sneakers
Your little black dress is always your life-saver, as it jives well with almost anything in your closet, even with your ivory footwear.
Corporate Casual: Blazer + White shirt + skinny jeans
Who says you can’t wear sneakers with a smart casual look? There are no boundaries with this clean and sleek look.
Perky pair: Jumpsuit/Playsuit + ribbed top
Be unique in a playsuit and white top combo, that will look better in neutral colors.
Schoolgirl Diaries: Plaid dress over a turtleneck top
Turtle neck tops have made a glorious comeback, and I’ve been patronizing the trend repetitively ever since. Try pairing it with a pretty-preppy print which is plaid and some gold accents to achieve a look that’s out-of-the-box.
Unconventional Inclination: Cold shoulder ribbed top and asymmetrical skirt
Embrace uniqueness with clothes that have unconventional cuts like this one I’m wearing. Invest in plain colors and white accessories to add some edge.
The Foolproof Sporty #OOTD: Loose jersey top, white shorts and scarf
Another trend on the rise are chokers and scarves tied on the neck. Try this trend on with your trusty pair of pearl whites to hitch a perfect on-the-go look.
Run-of-the-mill Feel: Your typical everyday wear a.k.a shirt & denim shorts
Of course, never put to rest the customary casual trend composed of a plain shirt and a pair of denims. Choose the right accessories to seal that look you’re trying to achieve – whether it’s girly casual or a sporty frock.
These are just some of the styles you can work on with your white sneakers. There are other countless ways to come up with the perfect ensemble, just don’t forget to be experimental and creative. But more importantly, choosing the right pair of whites is a must. When you already have them, anything goes!
